The Typewriter Database 1973 Olivetti Lexikon 82 Serial # E12 186469 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1973 Olivetti Lexikon 82 Serial # E12 186469 Another eye catching Mario Bellini's design, this model has its place at the MOMA NY, NY.
Golf ball printer with moving carriage. It claims "first portable golf ball", and cames with its carriyng case (a clever design again).
It is a heavy portable, not one to run from one place to other, buy as a matter of fact you can bring it from your office desk to your place, in your car trunk.
The motor is a rumorous one, not just the "buzz" of the Selectric.
Is very easy to change the ribbon cartridge, as it is exposed (four colors available when new, now you can feel lucky if you find a NOS in black.
There are replacements (again: in black) and if you are a DIY guy you can even open your cartridge and fit a new ribbon, or intend to re-ink the old one.
Olivetti's golf balls dont come easy (IBM golf balls are everywherem but they doesn't fit in your Olivetti).
The keyboard is similar to another famous Olivetti Electric: The Praxis 48. IMHO the best typewriter keyboards ever. If you are a good typist is very hard to make mistakes with this keyboard model.
Enjoy!
